How to Respond

Everyone in Hawaiʻi is required to participate in the Census starting on April 1, 2020, either online, by phone, or by mail.

The 2020 Census is easy. As a participant, you will answer a simple questionnaire about yourself and everyone who is living with you on April 1, 2020. Questions include the count of people living in your household, your contact information, your ethnicity, and the relation amongst residents in your household.

Households will begin receiving official U.S. Census Bureau mail in mid-March, which will contain detailed information on how to respond to the 2020 Census.
